That time Lemmy from Motörhead told me that Jimi Hendrix was “the best you’ll ever have”

By Steve Newton

I was just listening to an old interview I did with Lemmy Kilmister back in 2002 and came upon a bit where he talks about being a roadie for Jimi Hendrix back in the day.

Having never seen Hendrix in concert myself, I had to ask Lemmy if he was really as good as legend has it.

And apparently he was.

Have a listen:
